Lunchtime Talk

The Long Road to Recovery: Ethnic and Community-Based Organizations Leading the Way to Better Health in Eastern Burma

Mae Tao Clinic (MTC) has existed along the Thai-Burma border for the last 30 years to meet the needs of the border communities which were affected by the longest sub-national conflict in history. As the country embarked on political talks and dialogue at the national level, the ethnic health organisations started their process to transform, innovate and evolve to meet the needs of the border communities. MTC’s role is pertinent in building the capacity for health workforce and strengthening health system along Southeastern Burma in alignment with the government’s efforts. Issues relating to statelessness are even more critical for those born along the border like birth registration, child protection, education and health insurance among others.
